White Hot Heat in The Arizona Desert; Midterms 2022:
Uranium Mines, Indian Reservations and Dirty Deep State Politicians
As the political arena heats up for the November Midterms, perhaps one of the nation’s hottest battles will be in Arizona District 2. You have Deep State players on both sides of the aisle aggressively trying to shape the events. Why? I’ll tell ya.
Number 2: Arizona
Also holding its 2015 rank is Arizona, which takes the silver medal for mineral production value. Arizona leads the country in copper production and is one of the primary sources of molybdenum as well. In fact, Arizona’s molybdenum wealth is largely related to its copper wealth, as the molybdenum is recovered as a byproduct of the copper mining.
Arizona is a peach ripe for the picking. Deep State money is aggressively posturing to grab control of mining rights. Obama judges in place. We are watching the real time ravaging of the Navajo people. They have been irradiated for decades causing mind bending amounts of suffering and deprivation of even the most basic needs of life. And now… the table is being set to rob and pillage those people to the very end. The numbers above are just what they want us to know. There is a vast wealth of precious metals, uranium in particular, and rare forms of sand and quartz needed for computer chips. Lots of battery material as well. The plan? Simple, it’s what “they” always do. Buy off the local officials who sign away the rights of the land; stack the courts; get their political apparatus in line to do everything with taxpayer dollars and rape the land… and those living on it. If you’ll stay with me on this, I'm going to show you exactly how they’re doing it. Some history first:
From World War II until 1971, the government was the sole purchaser of uranium ore in the United States. Uranium mining occurred mostly in the southwestern United States and drew many Native Americans and others into work in the mines and mills. Despite a long and well-developed understanding, based on the European experience earlier in the century, that uranium mining led to high rates of lung cancer, few protections were provided for US miners before 1962 and their adoption after that time was slow and incomplete. The resulting high rates of illness among miners led in 1990 to passage of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act.
Enter the Navajo Nation.
IN 1990, THE US CONGRESS passed the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA). This act acknowledged responsibility for the historical mistreatment of uranium miners by the US government, the sole purchaser of uranium from 1948 to 1971, and made provision for financial compensation to miners with diseases that could be related to their mining experience. Ten years later, in June 2000, the US Congress passed and the president signed legislation amending the original law to correct for what were widely perceived as areas of unfairness in the original legislation.
Navajo men gravitated to work in the mines, which were near their homes and about the only job available. For many Navajo families, uranium mining represented a first contact with the broader US wage economy. These Navajo families were thankful at the time that they had employment.
When uranium mining began, the predominant modes of transportation for Navajo People were by horse and wagon or by foot on the reservation, the Navajo language had no word for radiation, few Navajo People spoke English, and few had formal education. Thus, the Navajo population was isolated from the general flow of knowledge about radiation and its hazards by geography, language, and literacy level. Today, the miners and their families say that they had no idea that there were long-term health hazards associated with uranium mining. Virtually all of the Navajo miners report that they were not educated about the hazards of uranium mining and were not provided with protective equipment or ventilation.
Today, many Navajo People note that the Treaty of 1868 between the Navajo Tribe and the US government assigned the Bureau of Indian Affairs to care for Navajo economic, educational, and health services. They view this as a special trust relationship that carried particular responsibilities, including safeguarding the health of the Navajo People. However, government-provided health care for Navajo People has been fraught with problems. From the 19th century through the 1940s it focused more on eliminating the role of native healers, or medicine men, than on curing widespread infectious disease. Thus, uranium mining– related disease arose in a context of other public health failures.
Of the 524 abandoned uranium mines on the Navajo Nation, many have multiple waste areas such as mill sites, open pits or tailings.
From 1944 to 1986, nearly 30 million tons of uranium ore were extracted from Navajo lands under leases with the Nation for use in supplying the atomic power and weapons arsenal of the U.S. military through the Cold War era.
Thousands of Navajos were recruited and engaged in uranium mining, processing and transportation.
Early on, many of these workers also lived and raised families in close proximity to the uranium mines and mills and were unaware of the associated risks.
Through the Atomic Energy Commission, the federal government was the only purchaser of uranium until 1966, when commercial sales of uranium began. The last uranium mine on the Navajo Nation was closed in 1986.
On July 16, 1979, the U.S. saw the largest catastrophic spill in history when over 1,100 tons of uranium waste and 94 million gallons of radioactive solution from the UNC tailings disposal pond at its mill in Church Rock breached a dam and flooded the Rio Puerco.
The toxic sludge was carried 80 miles downstream, contaminating the groundwater that many Navajos depended on for drinking, irrigation and livestock.
In 2005, a moratorium on uranium mining was passed by the Navajo Nation Council.
The Superfund was created in response to situations like the one above.
Thousands of contaminated sites exist nationally due to hazardous waste being dumped, left out in the open, or otherwise improperly managed. These sites include manufacturing facilities, processing plants, landfills and mining sites.
In the late 1970s, toxic waste dumps such as Love Canal and Valley of the Drums received national attention when the public learned about the risks to human health and the environment posed by contaminated sites.
In response, Congress established the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) in 1980.
CERCLA is informally called Superfund. It allows EPA to clean up contaminated sites. It also forces the parties responsible for the contamination to either perform cleanups or reimburse the government for EPA-led cleanup work.
When there is no viable responsible party, Superfund gives EPA the funds and authority to clean up contaminated sites.
Superfund’s goals are to:
It’s a bottomless slush fund controlled by the EPA. It’s used to grease palms and make media to gain votes; in reality “it ain’t much count for nothing else.” So now, Biden appointed Michael Reagan to come to the Directorship. No, no, no, they're not going to steal the money; they are going to use the money to steal even more. I am going to show you exactly how they are going to use it to strip Arizona and its reservations of all their resources. And… how we the taxpayers will pay for it all. It’s the same old hustle; they're going to give them beads for a treasure trove beyond the commoner’s wildest dreams. They have a plan you see and I’m going to show it to you. Their endgame is straight out of a high end Hollywood Bond movie. A new nuclear age of “clean energy” and a super quantum computer buried in the desert that will monopolize energy in a way not ever seen before. And more control over huge plots of land. Sounds far-fetched and futuristic don’t it? Read on.
Oh yeah, this is the “Big Green Plan” looking at you. Filled with language like “racial equity” “environmental justice” “racial environmental equity” the scene is already heavily insulated by highly charged woke media slogans and jargon. These are firewalls to hide the real deal. Those of you versed in the double speak of the Deep State and their love of boasting about what they are doing and going to do, can easily find this pattern. Stay with me. This gets GOOD!!!
Let me show you another occasion where they used the same plan. Treasure Island and Hunters point, San Francisco California.
by Steve Zeltzer, KPFA WorkWeek Radio
Former Treasure Island resident Shelby Hall testified at the June 19 RAB meeting that in 2001 they were told by the City not to allow their children to go near the contaminated sites on Treasure Island. – Photo: Labor Video Project
The U.S. Navy had its every-three-months dog and pony show at the Treasure Island Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) meeting on Tuesday, June 19, 2018. The previous meeting included a Tetra Tech representative and a loud confrontation, but this time Tetra Tech representatives were not on the panel since there are now two Tetra Tech managers in federal prison for falsifying the cleanup records at Hunters Point and an ongoing grand jury investigation with likely more sealed indictments that could lead to further criminal action against the top management of Tetra Tech.
Since the scandal blow-up, however, Congresswoman Pelosi has arranged to get another $42 million from the budget reconciliation bill for more retesting on formerly tested contaminated land in the Superfund site at Hunters Point Shipyard. This is after $1 billion has already been expended by the U.S. government to clean up Hunters Point Shipyard and Treasure Island, which are both Superfund sites.
At the Treasure Island RAB meeting on June 19, the Navy brought in a new spokesperson, Kimberly Noble, who works for the Radiological Affairs Support Office of the U.S. Navy to provide a full report on how the “cleanup” was going. She claimed that the cleanup was properly done with “aggressive” extra protection and “caution” to make sure that there were no serious dangers from radioactive and toxic material on the island. She was unable to answer how deep the core drilling went on the different plots of land even though she was the “expert.”
Another Navy spokesperson, Rebecca Cardoso, at Treasure Island claimed that the work was done by a subsidiary of Tetra Tech called Tetra Tech EC that was involved in only a minor part of the testing at Treasure Island. However, Robert McClain, who was a health and safety inspector at Tetra Tech, reported on June 27, 2017, that he had seen a large amount of contamination with serious radioactive material and also he had seen that large amounts of radioactive material had been improperly removed.
He also reported that there were radium commodities underneath the public housing on Treasure Island as well as large amounts of dust and he personally knew residents who had been contaminated and had cancers he believed were a direct result of this radioactive dump site. When he reported this serious violation of health and safety he was terminated by Tetra Tech “for doing his job” and banned by the Navy from working at any additional sites. He also received a 33-rem radioactive contamination dose while working on Treasure Island.
Kimberly Ostrowski, who is the director of the Navy Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC), also claimed in an editorial in the San Francisco Chronicle on June 19, 2018: “The shipyard project and nearby areas are safe. The levels of radiation are low; exposure to these levels would not result in an immediate risk to human health and the environment.”
This must be very reassuring to the families and workers in Hunters Point Bayview and the many contaminated families on Treasure Island. They admit that there is no “immediate risk.”
When Noble and Rebecca Cardoso were questioned about the falsification of testing by Test America at Treasure Island, they were unable to say what Test America’s role was. In fact, Cardoso actually said that since Test America was one of the largest testing companies in the U.S., this was unlikely and “we have no reason to question the work that Test America performed.”
When they were asked about the serious health and safety problems of the tenants at Treasure Island, Cardoso suggested that they contact the San Francisco Public Health Department. A key spokesperson of DPH, Amy Brownell, has been telling the residents of the area that there were no real serious chemicals and toxins at Hunters Point Shipyard; they were getting sick from stress. As Dr. Ahimsa Porter Sumchai has pointed out, Brownell’s salary, in a deal made by the City and County of San Francisco, is paid out of funds paid by the developer Lennar corporation.
Behind the continued effort to push forward with both the developments at Hunters Point Shipyard and Treasure Island are Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who have deep financial connections to this development of the Shipyard and Treasure Island. Feinstein’s husband, Richard Blum, financially pushed for the development; his company has the primary contract to build condos at Treasure Island. Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, Laurence Pelosi, was an executive of Lennar – in charge of real estate acquisitions – while she was pushing for the development and getting hundreds of millions for the “cleanup.”
Congresswoman Pelosi has long denied that there are any safety problems.
On April 25, 2018, in a statement, Pelosi claimed that “the Navy agreed with her request for the retesting of Parcel A at the former Hunters Point Naval Shipyard to be managed by the California Department of Public Health. The Navy and EPA assure us that this Parcel is safe.” At the same time the Navy and EPA had previously said that there had been massive falsification of the testing.
The continued silence by Congresswoman Pelosi, Sen. Feinstein along with Sen. Kamala Harris on the massive U.S. fraud is another indication that these politicians intend to plow ahead with the development and now have the backing of Trump’s U.S. Navy management.
The complete failure as well of federal OSHA and Cal-OSHA to carry out their oversight is also clear. Former Cal-OSHA Medical Director Dr. Larry Rose has said in the retesting at Hunters Point shipyard that using sodium iodide detectors without doing core soil sample testing to detect strontium 90 and plutonium 239 isotopes is obviously another ploy to do inadequate testing to rush through the declaration that Parcel A is totally safe.
Cal-OSHA inspections of the health and safety conditions of all workers on the testing project must be part of the testing program according to Rose. The history and reality of this major radiation toxic coverup is that both federal OSHA and California have failed to investigate the systemic bullying, retaliation against whistleblowers and their terminations.
In July 2014, Test America Quality Assurance Manager Michael Madry and an OSHA whistleblower sent certified letters and documents to both Pelosi and Feinstein reporting that there had been falsification of testing at both Hunters Point and Treasure Island by Test America and received no response. He also submitted a complaint to the former U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag who now works for Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe. She also refused to investigate the charges of massive criminal eco-fraud against the U.S. government at the Hunters Point Shipyard and Treasure Island.
The real cost has been the families and workers at both Treasure Island and Hunters Point Shipyard. Two of the speakers at the meeting demanded justice. Shelby Hall, a former resident, talked about how in 2001 they were told by the City not to allow their children to go near the contaminated sites on Treasure Island.
Former Mayor Willie Brown had been instrumental in arranging for the U.S. Navy to prepare the site to turn it over to the city for future million-dollar condos. In the meantime, they placed low income African American families and homeless on the Island.
It should be noted that San Francisco Mayor-elect London Breed was a protege of Willie Brown and got a job at the Treasure Island development project without civil service testing.
“From the start, Treasure Island was Brown’s pet project,” notes a 2010 Found SF historical essay, which reports: “Among the authority’s staff were a number of ‘special assistants,’ a cadre of city employees hired by the mayor without civil-service testing. A 2001 civil grand jury report noted that some were scrutinized in the press as patronage jobs. The report named several Treasure Island staffers, including former director Annemarie Conroy. London Breed, an unpaid intern in the mayor’s office who was promoted to development specialist and secretary to the board, now sits on the Redevelopment Commission. She defends Brown’s integrity: ‘He was really aggressive making sure the staff was by the book.’”
Melanie Williams, another resident at Treasure Island who lives there with her family, talked about how families have had to worry about being poisoned during the “cleanup” in the last 20 years. She demanded that they really get to the bottom of what is going on.
It is clear that the massive cover-up and eco-fraud scandal is continuing and the failure of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and San Francisco District Attorney Gascón are all sitting on this explosive criminal coverup by San Francisco and California’s leading politicians.
There are literally volumes of information about this tragedy. Look it up and get mad. Real mad!
Lemme break down the big picture. WWII produced Naval shipyards in the San Francisco bay. They were isolated and island-like. The war ended but its effects did not. The two shipyards were left irradiated and poisoned like a science fiction movie. The EPA and Navy got involved in the “clean up” of this toxic hellhole which also happens to be billion dollar real estate. In the end two supervisors for Tetra Tech (remember that name) got themselves a four month prison sentence. Which is nothing compared to the death and suffering they caused by falsifying the clean up data. In comes the crime families Pelosi and Feinstein and BOOM! These toxic hell holes are clean and ready for billion dollar developments. They cleaned up on the real estate and now… people are sick and dying from radiation exposure.
Two former radiation control technician supervisors for Tetra Tech, the company hired to clean up radiation at the Hunters Point Shipyard in San Francisco, have been sentenced to eight months in prison for falsifying records.
Stephen Rolfe and Justin Hubbard supervised a team of radiation control technicians hired to remediate radiation at the superfund site. According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Northern District of California, both admitted to switching clean soil samples with the soil they were supposed to have been testing in order to fake the results of the cleanup.
United States District Judge James Donato sentenced the men on Wednesday after they pleaded guilty to falsifying documents last year.
As part of his plea agreement, Rolfe admitted he broke Navy testing protocols, which require the company to clean up soil that had elevated levels of radiation. Instead, he says he directed radiation control technicians to get “clean dirt” from areas that had already been remediated and substitute them for the samples they should have been testing.
Rolfe, who had worked for Tetra Tech since 2008, said he wanted his crews to switch samples so the soil “would pass the laboratory analysis and not require further remediation.” He said he directed this about 20 times in 2012. He also said he watched his coworkers fill out government documents with inaccurate information.
Rolfe testified that he did not receive extra compensation for switching soil samples and that his motivation came from “pressure applied by the Tetra Tech supervisors.”
Hubbard, as part of his plea agreement, admitted that in 2012 he drove his company truck to an area outside the marked survey unit he was tasked with cleaning up, filled a bucket with clean dirt and fraudulently substituted it for legitimate soil samples. He then placed bar codes on the bags of dirt that misidentified the locations where he had taken the samples.
Hubbard worked for Tetra Tech at the Hunters Point Shipyard for about 15 years until he was fired in 2013.
Both men no longer work in the remediation industry, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Rolfe is currently serving his sentence. Judge Donato ordered Hubbard to self-surrender by July.
A Tetra Tech spokesperson says the company supports the action of the Department of Justice.
More links for the enquiring minds (remember Tetra Tech):
SAN FRANCISCO – The United States has intervened in three whistleblower cases pending in the Northern District of California against Tetra Tech EC Inc. (Tetra Tech) alleging that Tetra Tech submitted false claims to the United States Navy for radiological remediation and support services provided at Hunters Point Naval Shipyard in San Francisco, the Justice Department announced today.
I told you, I’ll prove every bit of this. But now I want to take a 30,000 ft look at AZ. When I found this story I was working with an amazing group of patriots, The CMZ Army (Google it), over on Truth. There I met Martha. Martha was born and raised in the desert in a mining family next to area 51 (no kidding.) With all the gemstones in AZ, Martha shines and glitters with a wealth of knowledge. She opened my eyes to this story. I am humbled by the privilege of telling it.
Any hoo, Looking from high above AZ, we see the Gila River Indian Reservation governed by Stephen Roe Lewis
This is how a “bought and paid for politician” (yes Indians have them too) flags for the Deep State. He publicly declares his devotion to the cause.
At this view you can’t miss Tom O’Halleran, known in my ranks as “TomO” (we know who we are). While looking up TomO’s butt with a telescope, the first thoughts that formed were “Tom’s anybody’s ole dog that’ll scratch him.” Truly, if ever there were a picture of a Deep State Lapdog… our boiiii TomO is that cat. He has been a Republican, an Independent and a Demoncrat. But more interesting is this, Tom started his career as a beat cop in Chicago. Think about Chicago for a minute. Look at that tricked out ride his police salary paid for.
After only a year of college, “O'Halleran served with the Chicago Police Department from 1966 to 1975. He then became a member of the Chicago Board of Trade, operating his own futures trading business with a focus in futures contracts on 10-year U.S. Treasury notes.”
What!!!? How the hell does that happen? A follower on line said this, “He arrested the right person”; I responded, “ or didn’t arrest the right person”
Purely speculation: to jump from a cop to a futures trader… had to be a lot more than a random DUI. Moves like this sometimes involve murder. Shit, considering the subjects, can we say “oft times involves murder.” Murder is the fastest way up their satanic pyramid. But I digress. Really, nough said right there about ole TomO. However, A little more history though; I want to color you a bright picture.
O'Halleran, then a Republican, served in the Arizona House of Representatives from 2001 to 2007. He then served in the Arizona State Senate, representing the 1st district from 2007 to 2009. In a 2008 primary election, he was unseated by Steve Pierce.
After leaving the Arizona legislature, O'Halleran hosted a radio show on KAZM in Sedona.
In 2014 he left the Republican Party, citing its policies on education, water, and child welfare. He then ran for the 6th district seat of the State Senate as an independent, losing by 3%.
You think when TomO left the republican party it was because he was already on the “16 year plan?” They never thought she would lose; they have been plotting in AZ for a while.
From his Wiki page: Elections
He explained his switch of party affiliation as a result of his positive attitude toward government, and, in particular, of his support for government regulations that would increase the use of wind and solar energy.
On August 30, 2016, O'Halleran beat Miguel Olivas in the Democratic primary. He defeated Republican Paul Babeu and Green Party candidate Ray Parrish in the general election with 51% of the vote.
O'Halleran at the 2018 Arizona Manufacturing Summit in Phoenix, Arizona
O'Halleran was reelected, defeating Republican nominee Tiffany Shedd with 51.6% of the vote.
117th Congress (2021–23)
O'Halleran was at the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021, to certify the results of the 2020 United States presidential election when the Capitol was stormed. He was moved to a safe location along with other members of Congress. He voted in support of a resolution calling for Vice President Mike Pence to use the Twenty-fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution to remove Trump from office. Days later, he voted for the second impeachment of Donald Trump.
TomO represents everything wrong with America today. He’s a career Deep State operative. Nothing more to say; you either know or you live with a bucket over your head.
Recently on the scene, Michael Reagan, newly OBiden appointed EPA Director. Above is a picture of everyone together. Remember how I said the Deep State is obsessed with their symbols, their boasting, their telegraphing of what they are going to do before they do it.?
Let’s look at more social media:
The wiki on Michael Reagan aka Mickey Raygun (everybody gets a nickname)
On December 17, 2020, members of the Biden presidential transition team told the press Regan would be nominated to serve as the next United States Environmental Protection Agency administrator. Regan is the first black man to run the agency and is responsible for helping to advance the Biden administration's commitment to combating climate change, promoting green energy innovations, and addressing the effects of environmental racism.
Regan's nomination was endorsed by the Environmental Protection Network, an organization composed of former EPA appointees and career staff which was created to oppose the Trump administration's efforts to roll back environmental regulations. On February 9, 2021, members of the United States Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee voted 14–6 to send Regan's nomination as EPA administrator for a full Senate vote. The full Senate confirmed his nomination 66–34 on March 10, 2021, and he was sworn in on March 11, 2021.
Empowered by his blackness in an Obama world and insulated by media hyped terms like “environmental racism” and “environmental racial equity” this guy is bullet proof. He’s the new green superhero and you better love him or “you're a racist!!!”. Oh yeah, and he controls unlimited power over their slush fund that Pelosi and crew so proficiently manipulated in the San Franshithole (change my mind) harbor to clear millions!!! Mikey Raygun is another poster child for the Deep State. Look at his career..
Here is TomO flagging to his masters that he’s getting the job done; buying off those tribal leaders.
Although I'm not shown in this photo, I had the pleasure of accompanying Navajo Council Delegate Kee Allen BeGay Jr., meeting Representative O'Halleran's, and recording the meeting with notes. The ability to do the latter is where my background in journalism came in very handy.
Yes, it is literally this easy to read these people when you know the playbook. These posts are from Tom’s intern:
I finally got a picture of me with my internship coordinator Cal Curley (directly next to me), Navajo Nation Council member Kee Allen Begay Jr. (next to Cal) and Representative Tom O'Halleran (D-AZ) from their meeting on June 23rd, 2021 to discuss important issues like irrigation around Many Farms, Arizona, and the cleanup of over 500 abandoned uranium mines throughout the Navajo Nation.
It was an honor to accompany him, help out by taking notes and shake Mr. O'Halleran's hand.
These posts from LinkedIn (where they document their Deep State plays), are from TomO’s intern. Interns are interesting, cause… Tom had another intern:
As I settle into my second semester at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I would like to look back on my extracurricular involvements from last semester. First, I would like to reflect on my relationship with the Athletic Department during the fall season. From soccer, volleyball, field hockey, and football games, I strengthened my communications skills, gained knowledge on the inner workings of athletics, and, most importantly, became a member of the Carolina family.
Carolina is a special place to me, the 30,000+ enrolled students, the alumni, and the state of North Carolina. I have had the pleasure of working closely with David Gehring as a Tar Heel Ambassador and I am excited for this upcoming winter season. Especially with the Duke v. Carolina basketball game coming up in 2 weeks, the Dean E. Smith Center will be the place to be.
Second, I want to thank Annika Albrecht for being my mentor throughout my political finance internship with Congressman Tom O'Halleran. I had the wonderful opportunity of being part of a team that was welcoming and accepting. The experience I gained while working closely with campaign financing and fundraising will be an asset to my future endeavors.
Guess where ole Kat was interning from… North Carolina! Who else is from North Carolina? Why it’s good ole Michael Raygun. Can you say asian Back channel? Maybe? Maybe my tinfoil hat is too tight? But you can’t say it’s not an interesting notion.
Michael Stanley Regan (born August 6, 1976) is an American environmental regulator. He has been serving as the 16th administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency since March 11, 2021. He is the first black man to serve in the role. Regan has formerly served as the secretary of North Carolina's Department of Environmental Quality and air quality specialist in the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). His elevation to that role was widely praised by environmental groups because of his track record for addressing environmental racism and supporting policy to address climate change.

Looks like a helluva sales job; what are they really selling? Didn’t I mention a “new nuclear age?”
PUBLISHED TUE, JUN 7 20228:30 AM EDT
After humankind discovered nuclear fission, the first applied use was the atomic bomb. The study of fission for electricity production came later.
In December 1953, President Dwight D. Eisenhower gave his fateful Atoms for Peace speech, an impassioned plea to reconstitute the power of the atomic bombs dropped in World War II for a more noble cause.
“Against the dark background of the atomic bomb, the United States does not wish merely to present strength, but also the desire and the hope for peace,” Eisenhower told the United Nations.
Almost 70 years later, the tension between those end uses still underlies the space today.
From the 1950s through the 1970s, the United States dramatically increased its nuclear energy generation.
Since the 1980s, nuclear energy capacity and generation in the U.S. has largely stayed flat. Today, the country’s fleet of nuclear power reactors produces only 19% of the country’s electricity, according to the government’s Energy Information Administration.
In more recent times, the Fukushima Daiichi accident in Japan in 2011 — and earlier this year the capture of nuclear power plants in Ukraine by invading Russian forces — have added to public concerns.
But despite its fraught origin story and the psychological effect of high-profile accidents, nuclear energy is getting a second look.
That’s largely because nuclear energy is clean energy, releasing no greenhouse gasses. Meanwhile, the world is seeing more of the effects of climate change, including rising global temperatures, increased pollution, wildfires, and more intense and deadly storms.
“We need to change course — now — and end our senseless and suicidal war against nature,” Antonio Guterres, the secretary-general of the United Nations, said in Stockholm on Thursday.
“There is one thing that threatens all our progress. The climate crisis. Unless we act now, we will not have a livable planet,” Guterres said. “Scientists recently reported that there is a 50-50 chance that we could temporarily breach the Paris Agreement limit of 1.5 degrees Celsius in the next five years.”
Hold that thought and look at this:
The Biden administration is pushing lawmakers to support a $4.3 billion plan to buy enriched uranium directly from domestic producers to wean the US off Russian imports of the nuclear-reactor fuel, according to a person familiar with the matter. Shares of uranium companies surged.
Energy Department officials have met with key congressional staff, where they said such funding is urgently needed, said the person, who wasn’t authorized to publicly discuss the information. Energy officials made the case that any interruption in the supply of enriched Russian uranium could cause operational disruptions at commercial nuclear reactors, the person said. US nuclear energy industry participants have also been briefed on the proposal, said a second person familiar with the details. The plan requires approval from Congress.
The proposal aims to spur development of more domestic enrichment and other steps needed to turn uranium into reactor fuel, the person said. It would create a government buyer directly purchasing enriched uranium, including the type used in a new breed of advanced reactors now under development.
Still, it won’t be easy for the US to jump-start the domestic uranium industry. The country has only one remaining commercial enrichment facility — a New Mexico plant owned by Urenco Ltd., a British-German-Dutch consortium.
The Global X Uranium ETF, an exchange-traded fund focused on the industry, jumped as much as 7.4% to its highest intraday price in a month on the news. Shares of uranium miners including Cameco Corp. and Energy Fuels Inc. soared along with nuclear fuel provider Centrus Energy Corp.
The talks come as the Biden administration contemplates slapping sanctions on enriched uranium imports from Russia in response to the Kremlin’s invasion of Ukraine while considering prospects that Russia could also decide to halt imports. Russia accounted for 16.5% of the uranium imported into the US in 2020 and 23% of the enriched uranium needed to power US commercial nuclear reactors.
The Energy Department didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm has called the US reliance on Russian imports a “vulnerability” for national and economic security, while drawing attention to the fact that US enrichment capacity has waned in part because of competition from state-subsidized sources.
The proposal dovetails with legislation introduced earlier this year by Senator Joe Manchin, the West Virginia Democrat who serves as a key swing vote, and Senator Jim Risch, an Idaho Republican, that would authorize billions of dollars in funding to increase the country’s domestic uranium enrichment capabilities. Other congressional backers of expanding US enrichment capabilities include Senator John Barrasso, a Wyoming Republican who serves as the top GOP member of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
Companies that could benefit from such a plan include Centrus Energy, the Bethesda, Maryland-based firm that is building an enrichment facility in Ohio, and ConverDyn, a joint venture between Honeywell International Inc. and General Atomics that provides uranium conversion services.

Now I'm sure you remember I told you about a “new nuclear age” and mining? I want to say this before I go any further. I smell Clinton stench. With all this big money, corruption, obvious Deep State players and uranium - this MUST tie to Uranium One and the Clinton’s. I just haven’t dug that deep.
Here is TomO buying his way into the secondary supportive companies surrounding mining.
Thank you Rep. Tom O'Halleran for voting for the #infrastructurebill. The long-term investments will advance highways, roads, bridges and other public work projects which will have positive economic impacts to our country! #RocksBuildAmerica
Looking from aloft you begin to see they have been at this for some time. Every square inch of the wealth of Arizona and the Reservations has been cataloged, measured, quantified and documented for miles under the surface. It sits near Yellowstone; Arizona is a caldera mineral deposit. Smoke on that.
Now, speculate with me. Could the poisoning through radiation of the entire Colorado River Valley have been a long-game deliberate act? A way to clear the indigenous people from the land? To isolate and deem worthless the land? Well, I’ll tell you. Forever as the Deep State has existed, its corporations and governments have gone in and stripped the wealth of more countries than I care to count. Leaving behind pain, suffering, death, corruption and war. Same old game: “give them savages beads for land”
With all that said, hell yes it’s possible that the Colorado River Valley was poisoned on purpose.
There are major water issues there as well. The wonderful Martha also explained that the whole drought is a dog and pony show to devalue the land. She goes on to state there are vast reservoirs underground, below the contamination zone. They are sitting on this to use once they actually set up shop on the ground. I don’t doubt her at all. Knowing all I know about the Deep State this is right on schedule. Why give away something which you can profit from ? Remember what they did to Tesla over free energy don’t ya? Don’t take mine and Martha’s word, look for yourself.
So far, I feel like I'm making a pretty good case. But there is so much more. So much more.
In 2019 the EPA announced that it would put 220 million dollars out for bid to begin clean up of the abandoned uranium mines in Navajo Country. Jim Dandy to the rescue…
04/23/2019 | 12:54pm EDT
VILLAGE OF OAK CREEK - This week, Congressman Tom O'Halleran applauded a recent announcement by the U.S. EPA to release a Request for Proposal for the Navajo Abandoned Mine Response and Construction Services contract. The $220 million contract is open for proposals from small businesses.
'In communities throughout the Navajo Nation, families are struggling with the toxic legacy of uranium mining, and it is critical that we remediate abandoned mines and ensure their lands are safe,' O'Halleran said. 'The EPA's announcement is an important, long-overdue step in the right direction, and I am pleased that action is being taken.'
The AMRCS contract will provide cleanup, response and construction services to EPA at and near former uranium mine sites in the Navajo and Grants, N.M., Mining District areas. The $220 million is project funding from the $1.7 billion the EPA has collected from uranium mine enforcement agreements and settlements.
And they awarded those contracts to small businesses (easy to overwhelm with money) two of which are minority owned.
The U.S. The Environmental Protection Agency awarded three contracts valued at $220 million last week toward assessment and cleanup costs for more than 50 abandoned uranium mine sites on the Navajo Nation.
According to the president’s office, the majority of the funds comes from the $1 billion the U.S. EPA received in the 2015 settlement with Tronox (previously owned by Kerr-McGee).Navajo Nation EPA Executive Director Valinda C. Shirley
In total, there are 524 abandoned uranium mines on Navajo that have yet to be cleaned up so this is good news, since it has been estimated that the entire cleanup could take decades and cost billions of dollars.
“I’m excited about it and it’s a step in the right direction,” said Navajo Nation EPA Executive Director Valinda C. Shirley, who’s appointment to head the agency was unanimously confirmed by the Council last Friday.
“The award of these contracts propels the cleanup of our priority mine sites across the Navajo Nation,” she said.
Shirley said she looks forward to working with the Council, the president’s office and chapters advocating for the impacted communities “with one unified voice.”
The three “Navajo Area Abandoned Mine Remedial Construction and Services Contracts” were awarded to Red Rock Remediation Joint Venture, Environmental Quality Management Inc., and one (non-Navajo) Native American firm, Arrowhead Contracting Inc.
Shirley said the U.S. EPA has its own procurement process for selecting contractors, which does not include Navajo preference for work on Navajo.
However, each of the contracted companies will be required to develop training programs for Navajos and Diné-owned businesses in areas such as radiological contamination, health and safety, construction and road development.
“The Navajo people have endured decades of radiation exposure and contamination caused by uranium mining and production that has taken the lives of many former miners and downwinders and continues to impact the health of our children,” said President Jonathan Nez.
“We appreciate the U.S. EPA’s efforts to create incentives and opportunities for Navajo Nation residents by working with the contracted companies to develop training programs for our people,” he said.
Nez also encouraged the companies to create opportunities for existing Navajo businesses through subcontracts.
“We have many Navajo-owned entrepreneurs and businesses that have the expertise and experience,” Nez said.
The 50 sites included in the contracts are in New Mexico’s Grants Mining District and 10 chapters across the Nation that were primary uranium extraction and production locations for several decades.
A request for the complete list of sites was not responded to by Shirley, who has served as the acting director since December 2020, after the departure of former Executive Director Oliver Whaley.
Prior to that, Shirley worked as the senior remedial project manager for the NNEPA Superfund Program, coordinating on-site environmental cleanup and remediation projects to ensure compliance with Navajo Nation and federal environmental laws, standards, and regulations in adherence with Diné Fundamental Law.
“With her upbringing, education, and professional experience, we are excited and confident that she will do a great job leading the Navajo Nation EPA,” said Nez.
Shirley earned a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the University of New Mexico. She is Táchiinii and born for Tł’ízÍ łání. Her maternal grandfather is Bit’ahnii, and her paternal grandfather is Ta’neeszhahnii.
According to the OPVP, in her work with the Abandoned Uranium Mines Lands projects, Shirley spearheaded the Northeast Church Rock Mine Site and the Tronox sites in Cove and Tse Tah, Ariz.
She advised the U.S. EPA concerning Navajo Nation laws and Diné Fundamental Law as applicable or relevant and appropriate requirements used in the Mariano Lake’s Mac and Black Mine sites.
She also coordinated with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on a Source Material License amendment for the United Nuclear Corporation mill site in the Eastern Navajo Agency.
Vice President Myron Lizer said Shirley is a prime example of an employee who rose in the ranks through hard work and ability to work with federal counterparts.
“I hold the office of the executive director of the Navajo EPA in the highest regard, and I have the utmost respect for the agency and its employees,” said Shirley.
“Since 1992, Navajo EPA has been the regulatory authority that safeguards Diné bikéyah dóó Nihookaa’ Dine’é,” she said. “In my experience working with the agency, it has served as an integral part of government by ensuring Nihimá Nahasdzaan dóó Nihit’aa’ Yádiłhił are kept clean to the highest of standards for our seventh-generation grandchildren.”
Shirley said the NNEPA is also seeking to hire additional staff.
“We need Navajo scientists and young, enthusiastic people to keep our energy up,” she said.
The above article shows how they are buying the best and brightest of the Navajo…. But those are not strings attached to these deals, but chains. Going into business with the government is like giving permission to a demon or vampire to come into your life. It’s there to kill you and it takes a miracle to get it out of your house.
Before we go on let's reflect on the lessons of Treasure Island. You can’t clean up a heavily radiated site. The best you can do is contain and store (the whole Colorado River Valley?) In doing so you spread the radiation virtually everywhere it goes. You could close off the land and relocate (the only logical solution) or… you can lie about it. Remember, I told you to remember Tetra Tech? Oh boy, this is where it gets good:
Just a month after receiving the Navy’s report, however, the EPA announced on its website that it had awarded Tetra Tech EC’s parent company a major contract to assess contamination on 30 abandoned uranium mines on the Navajo Reservation — the first large contract awarded for assessing the contamination of the 520-plus mines since
Can you believe this? WTF? There it is; the fix is in and we know the play book. The powers that be don’t give a popcorn fart about the Navajo; what they care about is gaining digging rights on their land, let's be clear. But they have to whitewash it.
Yes, members of the Navajo nation will undoubtedly secure jobs and positions that will pour money into their local economies. It’ll look great on social media. Look at that tricked out RV for the Navajo nation, that the Big Chief probably keeps at his house. How does that help the little children dying of radiation sickness? Wouldn’t that RV money buy the child a better home in a better place? Just saying?
Ok, we got a crooked contractor on site that knows how to “assess” the situation. Let’s take a peek at the other contractors who have been confirmed as awarded pieces of this 220 milli. One, ties back to Hunter’s Point and Treasure Island… directly.
Now, how government contracts work is this… political and or criminal connection/affiliation. The Deep State buys entire voting blocs and the return campaign contributions with government contracts. Especially in dim lit areas of the government. If you were to question their actions, “you’re a racist!!!” Sometimes these contracts establish a conduit of money, services and goods right back to the politicians who got the contracts released. You know this, right? TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) Watts Bar Nuclear plant had houses painted, gas tanks filled, yards mowed, barns built, $100k pieces of equipment bought and used one time-then to be disappeared… The list goes on and on and on. This is a form of graft seldom documented. These contracts have the power to make any organization. And before the contracts even dry in AZ, TomO is already pitching for more money. Which, by God, if you don’t agree with,” You’re a racist!!!”
Margot Perez-Sullivan, a spokeswoman for the EPA in San Francisco, said uranium remediation projects will take place in 10 Navajo Nation Chapters: Tolikan (Sweetwater), Round Rock, Lukachukai, Casamero Lake, Standing Rock, Teec Nos Pos,, Cove and Coyote Canyon.
U.S. Rep. Tom O’Halleran (D-AZ), said the money could clean up as many as 200 of the 500 uranium mines on the Navajo reservation that need remediation. However, O’Halleran said, with inflation, the funds may not be quite enough to remediate as many as the hoped for 200 uranium mines.
There were three contractors chosen, two of which were minority. Boy It gets shadier from here. For the purpose of this article, I want to focus on the two minority contractors. This is why: Minority owned businesses have guarantees in government contracting. They can’t lose.
Chief among the minority-owned business benefits is the preferred access to government grants and contracts. With the SBA 8(a) designation, your business can compete for what federal agencies call set-aside and sole-source contracts.
Especially, when the fix is in. If the fix is in… oooohhh Baby. It’s a bottomless pit of poorly regulated spending which evaporates into the air when it hits the contractor. It’s better than hitting the power ball. A project like this, has unlimited potential. Fortunes are being made. Sadly, none of this yet is particularly illegal. The devil is in the details.
Let me take you on a sidebar about a little government corruption I have some first hand knowledge of. As a young man I served an apprenticeship through IBPAT and became a Union Certified Journeyman Painter. Big stuff. In the south, all union work is government work. There are some union contractors who operate outside the government sphere, but why would you? The state was Alabama. The contractor was “Birmingham Industrial.” We would roll onto jobs, many government and major industrial sites, we could do a job with a well oiled machine of 12 Union professional coating applicators (sometimes as little as four to six.). Elite blast/Spray men.
I’ve seen on pay day, a whole stack of checks dropped off at job sites. Twelve men and forty or fifty checks. I was informed that if I could supply solid social security numbers and names… I maybe could get some extra checks too! Of course, I did not; that would be illegal and immoral. But many did.
I can tell you about this because they already got busted. When money hits the bottom like that everybody takes on the way back up the pyramid. What happened? They got greedy and were stealing from people like Goodyear and major industrial manufactures. Everybody steals government money; it's expected to keep the budgets up. That’s one thing; but biting the hand that feeds in Corporate America will get your head taken off. Lemme tell you one more quick one that’s a good example of what we can expect them to do in Arizona.
Again, Alabama. Contractor: Pen Gulf out of Charleston TN. Based at a chemical factory where the EPA is bought and paid for. The work: lead abatement of a bridge over the Black Warrior River. Army Corp of Engineers owned and operated. They sent a crackhead forman by the name of Mike Guzetti to run the job. He didn’t do any containment. You are supposed to 100 percent contain lead abatement with screens and large tent like enclosures. The crackhead was so busy stealing company resources and getting high, the job fell into disarray quickly. When pressured on production Guzzetti, in crackhead fashion, blasted the whole damn bridge with NO containment at all. The boss was happy, the crackhead was a hero and time marched on. Until the day of accounting when they could produce no accumulated waste or documentation.
I can tell you this one because the owner of the company died and the case of the contaminated bridge was lost into the paper shuffle of the courts - much like tons of toxic lead waste disappeared into the Black Warrior River. A major environmental breach, a ton of money spent on a government site. Should have made news all over the world. Bet you never heard of it before have you? Again, I was there.
Pen Gulf did the payday hustle too. They robbed from their employees and worked squads of hispanics all with names like Steve, Mike, Tom, Bob and George. You could pay cash, 5o cents on the dollar, for stolen gas… delivered… company truck. Enough said right there; you get the picture.
So the first contractor in AZ I want you to see is Arrowhead Contracting

This minority small business, 100 percent native American owned, is based out of Kansas. I ran their numbers and emails down and hollered at a few people. Nothing. The receptionist was kind enough to give me a number for their Arizona operation. 480 471 8399 is that number. A young lady answered “Arrowhead” and seemed… a little more than taken back about my independent journalist status. She got all the information she could about my contacts but I haven’t heard a thing. Been lookin over my shoulder a lot. So I did some digging on that number:
This is what popped up backgrounding the number: Brian McCrary
4413 N Camino Allenada, Phoenix, AZ, 85018. That's a residence.
Is there anything about this place that makes you think I might be correct in saying tons of graft is lost in the services, office space and other essential expenditures? Trust me, everybody got new trucks, devices, the works. They have an open ended ticket under federal law. And if you don’t like it, “you’re a racist!!!”
Oh yeah, let me backtrack just a little… Big Chief Gila River “I hate Trump” Stephen Roe Lewis (sure didn’t give his slave name up did he?), this guy ties to the gaming industry and sits on a gaming commission. His background ties him to numerous properties on the west and east coast including DC. He has had some traffic tickets and a few judgments against him for a few thousand here and a few thousand there. He is sloppy in his affairs? Or has he been poor and struggled? Maybe he just doesn't pay some bills? I don’t know yet, this is a work in progress. If you are reading this, start looking at this guy too. He is obviously letting the world know he is down with the program. Oh yeah, he matches a watch list under a different name:
System for Award Management Exclusions
Arthur Stephen Lewis
So anyway, Indian gaming commission - Indian contractor (don’t that sell well in social media?) working on Indian land that consists of poisoned uranium mines… from that house above… I don’t get the first notion of “Uranium Mines.” Below is a list of names associated with this phone number from the above house
Julian Ashton McCrary
Hamidah Ahmad McCrary
Jason C Loo
Kyle E Cox
Karlene Tucker Batchelder
Jason Carson Loo
Jonathan Calvin Loo
Can’t wait to deep dive these.
Any hoo, our second contractor is far more mysterious and cagey. Can’t talk to people at any of its numbers. Endless voicemails, run-around, bullshit. Very well done and quite professional on some ends of it. Generic and obviously veiled on others. But a stone wall on every end.
Here’s what I found:
RED ROCK REMEDIATION JV ERRG-ER JV
The JV stands for “Joint Venture.” Redrock Remediation out of San Franshithole is a generic, no real internet presence company with zero potential of cleaning up a contaminated uranium mine. But they are a minority asian woman owned company - solid gold in government contracting. Let me show you more about Redrock before we move to the other part of the joint venture, ERRG. Straight from the internet:

I called that phone number and it goes to the asian woman who is listed as owner, Cynthia Liu’s generic voicemail. She was hard to dig up. The phone number gives up this:
Briones, CA, 94553
ERRG is the other company and maybe parent company of Redrock, or Cynthia Liu formed the sub company just to get the contract? However it stacks; there’s numerous options.
First, let me show you what Redrock does or at least what they say they do:

ERRG – Your Engineering and Remediation Resource
I already know when I deep dive this firm, I’m going to find some very interesting stuff. I hope you, the reader, will endeavor to do the same. I’ll bet the farm she ties to Pelosi; this is too big and there are already too many connections.They will use close contacts when something this big is at stake. Notice above that ERRG has a history with… The Navy… at Treasure Island. Wonder who the liaison is for the Navy in such situations?
But wait there's so much more. Guess who else is in Phoenix? This is where it gets crazier still… Little Hunter Biden and the CCP. I’m going to show you how. At the first of the article I listed some AZ resources: molybdenum concentrates, was on the list. Look it up. As technology is progressing our appetite for basic building blocks has changed. In 2019 CMOC showed up in Phoenix.
China Molybdenum Company Limited is the largest molybdenum producer in Mainland China and top 5 in the world listed in the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and Shanghai Stock Exchange. It is one of the largest…
CMOC is not a very nice company and they have ties to the CCP of course. Strong ties. They don’t care about their own land and people, what do you think they will do in AZ?
But as always there is more.
DRC's copper-producing south, on January 29, 2013 [File: Jonny Hogg/Reuters]
Published On 10 Jun 2022
10 Jun 2022
There has been no change in control of Tenke Fungurume Mining, majority owner China Molybdenum has said, contradicting authorities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo who said a temporary administrator had taken control of one of the world’s largest cobalt and copper mines.
The secretary-general of Congo’s state mining company Gecamines told Reuters on Thursday that a court-appointed temporary administrator had officially taken charge amid a dispute between TFM shareholders.
Somewhere in China there is a warehouse stuffed to the ceiling with molybdenum, a tongue-twister metal which most people call moly and which has a number of interesting uses ranging from oil drilling pipe to the steel used in armaments.
Since the middle of last year, the price of moly has risen by more than 60% from around $7 a pound to $11.50/lb, down $1 on the peak of $12.50/lb reached earlier this month.

Not a widely-traded metal, nor one generally mined on its own, most moly is produced as a by-product of copper mining with the presence of moly in an orebody sometimes the difference between a mine being a profit (or loss) maker.
Last year, according to an analysis of the moly market by Macquarie, an Australian investment bank, the global market was over-supplied by around 45 million pounds thanks to a Covid caused drop in demand.
But this year the moly market is tipped to rebound with a deficit of 16 million pounds developing as demand outstrips supply.
The problem, which foxed the bank, is trying to understand the sudden shift in the market with the only explanation being that Chinese buyers were busy in the second half of last year soaking up the moly surplus and driving the price higher.
Massive Chinese Imports
“The big driver of the molybdenum price recovery last year was a massive rise in Chinese imports,” Macquarie said.
And here’s Hunter!!! He definitely has connections to the market:
November 20, 2021 8:02pm Updated
Hunter Biden's investment firm reportedly struck a deal to transfer the majority of Congo's Tenke Fungurum mine to a Chinese company in 2016.
Can you see what I see? They were making all these moves with the lead into the 2020 elections. They knew Biden would steal the election. They were sure enough they already all started investing time and money into their big globalist, new world order, futuristic, sci-fi, take over the world scheme. This all goes to the credibility that the entire global scope of events has been scripted by the CCP and the Deep State.
As I wrap up this first installment I want to conclude with showing you the first instance of this globalist plot running over the Native Americans:
May 27, 2022
Toronto-based Hudbay Minerals Inc. from preparing a planned new Arizona copper mine’s site in the Santa Rita Mountains near Tucson.
U.S. District Judge James Soto refused to issue a temporary restraining order and dismissed the lawsuit filed by the Tohono O’odham, Pasqua Yaqui and Hopi tribes and the group Save the Scenic Santa Ritas, the Arizona Daily Star reported.
Soto’s ruling Monday said Hudbay’s surrender of a suspended Clean Water Act Permit for a nearby project named the Rosemont Mine removed the lawsuit’s legal basis because the projects were not legally related.
The company pivoted to the Copper World project on private land on the Santa Ritas’ western slopes after the Rosemont Mine ran into legal obstacles related to its location largely on public land.
Hudbay maintains that the Copper World site on private land doesn’t include stream beds, which are mostly dry except when it rains, that are subject to Clean Water Act authority.
Stu Gillespie, an attorney for the tribes, said Soto’s ruling was disappointing because it “allows Rosemont to evade the regulatory process and bedrock environmental laws.”
Now who do you think appointed this Judge? You already know; Barry “Barack Husein Obama” Sorrato! Big Mike Robinson’s husband (everybody knows Michele was born Michael LaVaughn Robison right?). The fix is in.
Lemme give you just one more thing for I shut this thing down. “Secret Science” the EPA is allowed to make its decisions based on unpublished data - “secret science.”
One issue, critics say, is that EPA wants to greatly broaden the policy's scope, applying it to all studies and data used by the agency and not just the "dose response" studies mentioned in the initial version. The draft also asks the public to comment on whether, in some cases, the transparency rule should be applied retroactively to past studies used to support regulation, potentially opening the door to challenges of existing rules.
EPA officials have argued that the data transparency policy is needed to ensure that the agency uses only the best "pivotal regulatory science" that can be "independently validated" when crafting "significant" rules that are expected to impose major economic costs. The leaked proposal says EPA regulators should have "the right to place less weight" on certain studies, "to the point of entirely disregarding them," if the underlying data are "not made available in full to EPA."
Critics say that language is primarily designed to weaken regulation by preventing EPA from considering epidemiological and other studies in which researchers have promised to protect the privacy of human subjects. Such confidential health information, which is typically not released to the public, has played a major role in shaping stricter EPA limits on air pollutants. For example, the iconic 1993 Six Cities Study, which linked particulate air pollution to human death and disease, helped spur new EPA soot controls. But some industry groups have long objected to EPA's use of such "secret science."
BY REBECCA BEITSCH - 03/03/20 7:43 PM ET
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) walked back a component of one its most controversial proposals Tuesday, weakening an effort that would have restricted the agency from considering scientific studies that don’t make their underlying data public.
But the tweaks are not garnering support from the scientific community, as it expands the 2018 proposal in other ways.
The so-called “secret science” proposal, a nickname given when it was first pushed by former Administrator Scott Pruitt, spurred more than 600,000 comments, many of them critical of the agency for penning policy that would block consideration of some landmark public health research.
The administration has argued the rule is necessary for transparency, but it has struggled with how to offer a workaround for key studies that wouldn’t be able to share their data publicly without exposing subjects’ personal information.
The Tuesday update doesn’t abandon the policy’s underlying goal, but rather than exclude some research entirely, the agency would now give preference to studies with public data.
“Other things being equal, the agency will give greater consideration to studies where the underlying data and models are available in a manner sufficient for independent validation,” EPA wrote in the new proposal.
But the newest version of the rule would also apply this standard more broadly, covering an even wider variety of scientific research. It also expands its scope, putting the “secret science” principles in practice not just when EPA weigh a new regulation but also in other agency activities.
Betsy Southerland, who was director of the Office of Science and Technology at the EPA’s Office of Water under the Obama administration, said those features make the proposal worse overall by expanding its reach.
Scientists also argue it will still favor certain research and give the administration the political power to ignore studies that conflict with their policy goals.
“They are basically going to say the studies where the data is publicly available are better than studies where the data isn’t publicly available, irrespective of how good and important the science and the evidence is,” said Andrew Rosenberg with the Union of Concerned Scientists.
“It’s totally not scientific and nonsensical.”
Scientists argue underlying data isn’t necessary to vet a study. Peers instead review the basic methods and statistics to see if the results support any conclusions that were drawn.
The new hierarchy would downplay research into the effects of chemicals and pollutants on humans, while industry-funded studies might open their data in order to give a boost to their work.
“Think of this in the context of coronavirus,” Rosenberg said. “Can you imagine data being the most important thing or do you want scientific research that is robust?”
EPA’s independent Science Advisory Board reviewed its earlier proposal in December, reiterating “concerns about the scientific and technical challenges and feasibility of implementing some requirements,” while other key considerations were “omitted from the proposal or presented without analysis.”
I said it once and I’ll say it a thousand times ”The Fix is In!!!” Secret science and dirty contractors. Who will save the Navajo people?
This is just the tip of the iceberg. The next part of this article series will be done to take a look at the right wing Deep State operatives. That’s how big this is. The Deep state is pouring money into both sides for a contingency plan.
Before I go, I want to drop these handy digging tools. I hope you’ll use them as much as I plan on.
This above, is more fun than a speckled pup in a red wagon.
I hope and pray even one person who looks at all this will pick up a shovel and start digging. The primary in AZ is August 2nd. There is only one person on the ticket who could even have a chance at protecting the victims of this plot. He has no Deep State ties, no big money backers… But this is not a political advertisement. In the next part I’ll show you through the logical flow of information how it comes down to only one person.
Not because I’m a fan or supporter, I admittedly am, but because the man in the cowboy hat is the only good guy on the playing field. Of this I am sure.
Stay tuned and like and share this story all over the world.
